At a recent fundraiser at Harvey Weinstein’s home, President Obama blamed his inability to govern on talk radio host, Rush Limbaugh. According to President Obama, Republicans in Washington DC are too “concerned what Rush Limbaugh might say about them” and therefore, they refuse to cooperate in a reasonable manner with the President and the Democrats.
Taking Obama’s thoughtful analysis to heart, Rush Limbaugh has graciously extended an invitation to President Obama; live on the radio today, Rush Limbaugh suggested a “President Obama/Rush Limbaugh Summit. ”
“In the spirit of doing whatever I can to move things forward in this country, I would like to make myself available to the president of the United States to sit down and talk with him at a place of his choosing — and discuss the problems facing the country, and maybe working together. Since I am the opposition, since I am the obstacle, since I am the reason he can’t get things done, I’ll be glad to sit down with him any time, anyplace that he wants.”
What’s that you say? Brilliant suggestion? I agree! Now, let’s see if President Obama will take Rush up on his kind offer and finally solve this gridlock problem.
Balls in your court, Mr. President!
Update – Rush explains:
He simply cannot get me off his mind. I live rent free in his head. And he is using me as his convenient excuse for not being able to get anything done. He really thinks the Republicans would work with him if it weren’t for me. So he’s telling these Hollywood people — and you gotta understand, they’re sitting there and they’re very sympathetic, and they love Obama, and they want Obama to succeed. I’m the guy who said, “I hope he fails.” So Obama’s sitting there and he’s telling these Hollywood people, “You know, this Limbaugh guy, this Limbaugh guy… If it weren’t for this Limbaugh guy, Good Lord, look what I could get done!” … Now, let’s be honest, folks. Who am I? I’m a guy on the radio. I am your beloved host, El Rushbo. I’m a guy on the radio. The fact remains that the truth of the matter is, by his own admission, I am the opposition to Barack Obama.
Serious question: does anyone think that President Obama lowers his own standing and/or the standing of the Office of the Presidency when he engages in gratuitous mud slinging with a talk radio host?? I know I do.

The IRS scandal. The AP phone tapping scandal. Brazen Benghazi lies. Obama’s enemies list….
President Lincoln once said that if you want to test a man, give him power. In Obama’s case, he is failing the test.
As Rand Paul puts it, “this sounds like a President somewhat drunk on power.”

Liberalism again makes a case for being classified as a mental disorder.
SACRAMENTO (CBS/AP) – Transgender students would have the right to use public school restrooms and participate on sports teams that correspond with their expressed genders under a bill approved Thursday in the California Assembly.
In English, that means if Californian boys want to use the girls’ changing rooms and toilets then they have the right to do so. Citizens are warned that if the randy 14 year old down the road wants to get naked next to your daughter, tough. If you disagree, you’re a bigot.
I say let bigotry reign.
Need I say that parents should do everything possible to keep their children from the nonces, weirdos and perverts who infest government schools?

The “Oxford Sex Gang” was convicted today. The Telegraph reports that girls as young as 11 were forced into prostitution and trafficked about the country for paedophiles. They used and abused their victims over long periods of time, subjecting them to “extreme depravity”, including biting and being horse-whipped. Oh, and as always, “opportunities to stop the abuse were missed time and again”, with one victim even being threatened with arrest for wasting police time.
Don’t we have alot of nonce gangs abusing young girls? I dunno, it’s just an odd feeling, but there’s something about the gang that I can’t quite put my finger on. Do you think there’s anything they have in common?

On why we don’t want politics sorting anything out.
Dan Hodges blogs in The Telegraph that Cameron is making a right cock up of the EU referendum bill, stating: “But whatever you think of the issue of Europe, is this really the way Britain should be dealing with one of its leading strategic geopolitical partnerships?” He’s right of course. Tim Worstall replies (as I said it’s a very good point, and fundamental, so I’ll paste it below):
But this is how politics deals with everything. It’s why it’s such a shit way of dealing with things: sometimes entirely necessary but exactly why we want politics to have as little do with things as is possible.
Every decision is weighed as to the political benefits that it brings the decision maker. And that’s it: we don’t get carefully considered mulling over what is the right thing to do.
Consider the (possibly apocryphal, but it’s illustrative of the problem all the same) decisions over steel works under Callaghan. Yes, everyone accepted that steel works needed to be very large indeed in order to be efficient enough to survive. Big integrated works. So along went the decision: British Steel would have a girt big integrated works.
But where to put it, Scotland or Wales? For political reasons it was halved in size (and therefore neither half was large enough to be efficient) and one half in each Labour dependency.
As I say, that’s how almost all decisions are taken@ what’s good politics, not what is good by any rational standard.
Whether we should be in the EU or not is something that can and should be debated (as everyone knows, I’m hugely biased on this point). But that’s not what is actually happening, is it? Instead we’ve got the usual mess of short term political manouvering.
Politics just isn’t a very good way of dealing with things.

Angelina Jolie has undergone the exact same operation as my wife, for the exact same reason. I send her and her family my prayers for strength for what she is going through. It is not an easy journey.
Angelina Jolie has both breasts removed…

A high-profile republican has dropped a legal action over being arrested and charged with killing two RUC officers. Colin Duffy, 47, had been seeking damages for alleged wrongful arrest, false imprisonment and malicious prosecution over the murders in Lurgan, County Armagh, 16 years ago. His claim against the RUC and the attorney general had been due to get under way at the High Court in Belfast. After out-of-court discussions, a judge was told the case was not proceeding. Mr Duffy had issued proceedings over his detention following the IRA murders of Constables David Johnston and John Graham. The officers were shot while on foot patrol in Lurgan in June 1997.
I remember vividly being in Lurgan that day. The officers were shot in the back of the head by an IRA hit man. I have met the mother of one of the young officers – her heart was broken that day. She has sought justice for her son ever since but the local republican community have held silence.
The guilty party remains at large. I wonder who HE might be?

…to borrow a phrase from the more moral 1950′s.
Stuart Hazell should hang for killing Tia Sharp, her father said yesterday. Steve Carter broke down in tears when Hazell dramatically changed his plea to guilty midway through his murder trial. Outside court Mr Carter said: ‘The four days of trial here were very hard to deal with, hearing the vile things Hazell did to Tia. ’He should serve his time and then be hung. I do not see today’s events as justice for Tia, merely a legal conviction.’ Hazell suffocated the 12-year-old during a sex attack after months of trawling vile internet pornography sites and filming her as she slept.
If convicted of this heinous crime, and he HAS confessed to it after all, I think he should hang. To waste taxpayers money keeping him well fed and comfortable for the rest of his natural life in prison is a farce. I believe that capital punishment is particularly required in the case of child killers (and also terrorists) and the longer we deny this the more terrible crimes like this will occur. We need to send the lesson that IF you murder a child you will forfeit your own life

Of course we all KNOW what Labour were up to during those long years when they were in power but it is nice to have it confirmed by none other than Peter Mandelson;
“Speaking at a conference organised by Labour’s Progress group, Lord Mandelson said: “The issue of immigration is more economic than social. The problem has grown during the period of economic stagnation over the past five, six years, because in 2004 when as a Labour government we were not only welcoming people to come into this country to work, we were sending out search parties for people and encouraging them, in some cases, to take up work in this country because we were almost, a sort of full employment economy.”
1. There was NO ‘sort of’ full employment but there was a legion on ‘sickness” benefits care of Labour massaging the figures.
2. Labour deliberately settled on a policy of radical demographic change based on their notion that the UK did not contain the right ‘talents’.

Under the fold are the Articles of Impeachment that were brought against Richard Nixon. You tell me after you read those Articles what did Nixon do then, that Obama isn’t doing NOW ?
Just wanted to flesh out the thought, since there are so many in denial out there at what has been going on.
1) Mitch McConnell’s office was bugged, we found that out about a month ago.
2) The IRS has been used as a weapon against the Presidents enemies.
3) The Administration lied to the public, and has lied under oath several times, engaging in multiple cover ups.
The question is of course Mr. President what did you know and when did you know it ? The difference between Richard Nixon and Barack Obama is that back in the 70s it was expected of our President to be an Honest man. It is no longer expected or is it a shock that those who hold high office have no integrity or honesty.
All that matters is the agenda, and the agenda is not one founded in American roots. I read the comments on here and made by others in and on the airways. We must protect the President, we must protect the next President Hillary. I ask you why?
What does it say about people, that who they want to lead them are those that have committed these crimes. It’s the same as with those that vote for the IRA/SF over there. You promote and endorse the behavior of those you support.
That means whatever behavior they engaged in once you know about it, and still vote for them… You are just as guilty of their crimes.
